SRU music faculty offer Oct. 3 recital

SLIPPERY ROCK, Pa. - Slippery Rock University faculty have been collaborating during rehearsals and will present a free recital of classical and modern works open to the entire University community at 12:30 p.m., Oct. 3, in Swope Music Hall.

The performers will include: Nanette Kaplan Solomon, professor of music on piano; Colleen Gray, associate professor of music, voice; and assistant professors Warren Davidson, violin and viola; Katheen Melago and Stacey Steele, flute; Christopher Scott, voice, and Glenn Utsch, piano.

Steele and Melago will offer "Variation on a Swedish Tune," by Ingolf Dahl, on flute and

and alto flute. Davidson will offer a work by Hubay, accompanied by Utsch.

Utsch will also offer a prelude by York Bowen solo, and Solomon will accompany Scott and Gray as well as offer a solo work.

Melago said the faculty came together as a way of modeling to the students how faculty can collaborate to present a concert.

"It is just what we expect our students to do," she said. "We can also model proper stage etiquette and performance procedures. It is also a great way to get to know our music students, and them to know us."
